Enjoyed tour very much....staff were excellent. Would defiantly recommend
Loved it! My third one there to do, I recommend everyone do one!
Lovely. Make sure you give yourself an extra 25 mins at the start to locate kiosk and queue but well worth the money and great cocktails.

Such a beautiful experience cruising the canals in the evening with the city all lit up. The crew were very friendly and efficient. The cocktails were simply delicious and there was also wine available for the whole cruise. There was so much of the nibblies I couldn't finish them, even couples who were sharing a plate! Would highly recommend it.
Inspite of the fact that all the construction makes it difficult to find the cruise, and their was confusion about folks booking a candlelight cruise coming on the cocktail cruise, the cruise itself was awesome. Xavier sorted out the issues with boarding with great aplomb and was very calm, friendly, helpful and successful in arranging the problems of boarding. Great experience. We've done it twice and will do it again....thanks
This tour was absolutely fantastic. The staff on the boat were so helpful. This trip made our hen weekend
We thoroughly enjoyed this trip.We were shown to our allocated table by polite and friendly staff.
Nibbles and drinks were lovely.
The only critisicism was, once we eventually got our tickets from the kiosk we were told to join the wrong queue. The signage needs to be made clearer and the staff better informed.
Very enjoyable experience. The weather was great, which made it even more pleasant. Thank you
Exchanged coupon for ticket at their offices near canal - no problem. Then waited about 20 minutes before being allowed to board the canal boat. The cocktail cruise was in conjunction with the cheese and wine cruise. Full boat. Had a choice of 6 cocktails - allowed 2. Have to say glasses were small!. provided with nibbles as well. Limited sights information provided as waitresses busy supplying drinks etc. Started off in daylight but soon went dark. Bridges are lit up at night which made tour more interesting. Overall a good night time tour, worth the money.
I have done 2 daytime canal cruises with various companies on previous Amsterdam trips. Those were great, but this time, I wanted a different perspective on this beautiful city. Cruise left at 9pm, just as the sun was setting in April in the summer -- when I usually visit -- it would definitely not be dark during the cruise. There was no commentary at all -- I do not know if this is typical for the evening cruise or there was perhaps an equipment failure on this trip -- so it was ok for our experienced group, but would not be ideal if you wanted to learn about the city and the sights you were passing. The nibbles were fine some chips and bread with various dips and the cocktails were better than we expected. Cocktail menu is limited there are only 5 choices but the very friendly staff was generous with the wine.
Nice but could have missed the boat as the voucher incorrectly said 9pm when infact it was 8pm. Luckily we checked at the cruise place.
As I was only spending a night in Amsterdam, I chose the canal cruise so I can see all there is to see. Was not disappointed with the views.
Cruise was very pleasant, cocktails where very nice,l.The only complaint we had was that it took us ages to find the ticket office to exchange our tickets up, needs better signage.

Well this tour was just about right not a full boat load but very comfortable. Our hosts for the night were both guides and waitresses. The boat seem to go everywhere with ease and we were kept informed of the sights and POI. It was value for money and we both enjoyed the night.
The cocktail cruise itself was very good and the waitress serving drinks did a great job. The tour narrator was not good. She seemed bored and tired of doing her job. She was unnecessarily sarcastic as well.
Lovely route, worth doing. Cocktails are not great. Wine saved this.
The guide was informative, snack was not good though. The cocktails were fine, the strawberry tasted like medicine tho.
The tour itself was beautiful, the weather, the water, everything was perfect.
We were first to arrive for the tour (over an hour early) but managed to one of the only two pairs who didn't have their own table. We ended up sitting next to strangers (who got the window seat), so unfortunately I spent a lot of time looking into the kitchen that I was facing rather than seeing the sights out of the window, which was a real shame. With that said, the tour was well run, the food was AMAZING and the drinks were generous. If you have a table to yourselves (groups of 4) and are able to see the sights out of the window, I imagine this is a 5* trip well worth recommending.
